   VALID 251200Z - 261200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   MID LEVEL TROUGH AXIS WILL BE LOCATED ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
   AT THE START OF THE FORECAST PERIOD...AND IS FORECAST TO DEEPEN AS
   IT MOVES ACROSS THE NRN ROCKIES. BROAD HEIGHT FALLS ASSOCIATED WITH
   THIS SYSTEM WILL ALLOW STRONGER MID LEVEL WINDS TO PENETRATE FARTHER

   EAST EXTENDING ACROSS WRN SD/SRN WY BY MONDAY AFTN. SFC WINDS BEHIND
   THE FRONT WILL BE MODERATELY STRONG ACROSS THE NRN HIGH PLAINS...BUT
   SUFFICIENTLY HIGH RH VALUES WILL PRECLUDE CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS.
   HOWEVER...FARTHER WEST ACROSS THE SNAKE RIVER VALLEY/NRN GREAT
   BASIN...DRIER CONDITIONS AND BREEZY WINDS ARE EXPECTED AND MAY
   REQUIRE AN UPGRADE IN THE NEXT FORECAST.
   
   ...PORTIONS OF ID INTO THE NRN GREAT BASIN...
   WINDS ACROSS THIS REGION WILL BE STRONGER THAN ON SUNDAY...WITH
   SUSTAINED SPEEDS OF 15-20 MPH POSSIBLE. MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL RANGE
   FROM 10-15 PERCENT...WITH MAX TEMPS IN THE MID/UPPER 80S. IT APPEARS
   WINDS WILL REMAIN JUST BELOW THE CRITERIA FOR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER
   CONDITIONS...ALTHOUGH LOCALLY STRONGER WINDS ARE POSSIBLE DURING
   PEAK HEATING.
